There have been a number of times on shows where mirrors have been seen to be used particularly in fantasy shows and have often been very creative in their technical flair. One thing that stood out to me in this weeks episode was the USE of Mirrors and the effective ways in which they were used. Both instances were made to make a connection between another person.
“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”
So what do we notice here with this shot of Amara walking up to the mirror?
One thing that stands out to me is that she knows HOW to communicate through the mirror because she has talked to the other woman before?? So she knows instinctively how to communicate via the mirror?
Then as if by MAGIC the bigger Amara appears floating in like willow the wisp!
What is behind the communication point that a mirror can help evil communicate? Is it because it can see its OWN reflection looking back at it. Is Glass see through, transparent that it can lend itself to being used by magic?
So what pure properties does glass hold for evil to communicate through?
The boys knew that the witch could communicate with Rowena but were they really aware of how clever witches could be in the way that they communicate with one another. In earlier seasons we have seen demons communicate with the elders via blood from a murdered meat-suit, so all lines of communication with beings are very different as most of the time spells are used to communicate.
So who’s to say one method is better than the other. If either blood or glass will do?
Loosing a human life in order to communicate, does it get the job in question done?
Is in this case, is glass the best means of spiritual communication?
What is so magical about glass, that evil can see through it?
